Supremely comfortable newly renovated traditional Czech country cottage that sleeps up to 13 people in the Northern 'Krkonos' Mountains.
Chalupa (pronounced ka-loop-ah) is the Czech word for a specific kind of country cabin/cottage built in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
In this case our Chalupa was built around 1830 of huge timbers and was carefully renovated in 1995. It sleeps up to 4 couples and up to 6 additional children/adults comfortably in separate beds.
The cottage is fully furnished, recently re-equipped and sits in in the village of Rokytnice (pronounced Rocket-neet-say) at the base of the scenic Krkonose (pronounced kerk-ken-oh-shea) or giant mountains, about 1.5 hours north of Prague.
With some certainty, the time spent in our Chalupa will be one of the most positively memorable vacations you ever take.
Rokytnice is teaming with activities, particularly in the winter and summer seasons. In the winter, the town boasts the longest ski slope in the Czech Republic - comparable to Stowe, VT in the USA. In the summer, hiking and mountain biking are the most common activities. Excellent restaurants and standard ski village shops (a supermarket, ski/bike rental locations, etc) are located throughout the town. Nearby alpine towns of Spindleruv Mlyn and Harrachov off additional activities.
The whole house.
I interact with my guests through the AirBnB website prior to the visit, and by phone immediately preceeding and during the visit.
We had an amazing time at Dan's beautiful house. 6 comfy bedrooms and a huge living room offer enough space for a get away with a group of friends. Also a big "thank you" to Ales, the caretaker, who prepared the house so perfectly.
Daniel is een hele enthousiaste en goeie gastheer! Hij stuurde ons op voorhand al wat informatie door en zelfs achteraf belde hij ons op om te vragen hoe wij het hadden gesteld! Wij zullen zeker nog terugkomen naar het huis in Rokytnice. Bedankt Daniel!
